Santa Skivvies San Francisco 2021
Santa Skivvies is an annual holiday underwear fun run/walk and fundraiser benefiting San Francisco AIDS Foundation. The route weaves throughout the streets of the iconic Castro neighborhood, starting and ending at LOOKOUT on Noe and 18th.
Whether you choose to walk, run, scooter, skip, or skate the one-mile course, make sure you wear your festive holiday attire, or whatever makes you feel fabulous! The event welcomes every body.
While the event is great fun, it is more than just prancing around the Castro in your skivvies! Santa Skivvies helps support the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, a pillar in the community, providing STI/HIV testing and treatment, PrEP navigation, mental health and substance use services, and much more.
On the day of the event, make sure to come early to check out Santa’s village. Then stay after the course for the award ceremony, skivvies runway, and drag show. Organizers provide changing booths, clothing checks, glam stations, and plenty of selfie ops. There is no better way to kick off the holiday season than by dropping by, raising funds, and fighting for health justice!
- The Castro District, in Eureka Valley, is synonymous with gay culture. Revelers often spill onto the sidewalks at numerous bars, like Twin Peaks Tavern, whose floor-to-ceiling windows were revolutionary when it opened in 1972. The lavish Castro Theatre and the GLBT Historic Museum are also found here, as are homey restaurants and adult shops. On Market Street, 19th-century F-line streetcars head to Fisherman’s Wharf.
- There are some charming Guest Houses in the Castro. If you are looking for a larger hotel then check out the SoMa district, just a 10 minute drive from the Castro.
San Francisco is split into several areas but the main 2 are The Castro and Soma, with Soma being the area the where you will find Folsom Street, and most of the leather and fetish bars. With there being so many gay bars we have had to put 2 maps in.
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action
Gay Map of San Francisco
